Statement of Educational Principles

Public school systems in the United States of America exist to educate all of the young people of our nation. The very cornerstone of our democracy is based on a literate populace, equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for responsible participation in our American way of life. Boards are responsible for the governance of these schools, working with parents, students and communities in the development of citizens able to learn from and build upon our rich and diverse cultural heritage and able to work together to perpetuate and enhance our American culture and system of government.
